Ammo Prices: 07/25/2014

    Week 17.

    So, it appears that prices are generally moving a bit up. We have more vendors that have increased prices on calibers than have lowered. .223 Rem and .308 Win have taken the brunt of the increases.

    The Armory contacted me and wanted me to let everyone know that they ran dry on Wolf–so their lowest prices are now all brass (historically they have had the lowest overall prices for a vendor).

    Again, this week the only free shipping that I could identify was through Ammoman (and I didn’t flag anything in the tables specifically).

    We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this article series as long as it is productive.

    As always, if you have comment or witticisms, please leave them below. And if you find that some of the items are now out of stock or the prices have significantly changed, please let the other readers know. Also, if you know of any vendors that are not represented here and you have had a good experience with, comment below and we will see about adding them.

    We have included the raw data so you can run your own trends: Weekly Ammo – 20140725

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
